Hi I have little experience at AG brewing and have a few spare parts to make a RIMS tube. To replace using a plate chiller or a cooling coil, if I put a 4" condenser at the end of the RIMS tube, would it be effective? I am suggesting that I circulate with the element on and the condenser off while heating. When I need to crash cool, I switch off the element and start the flow to the condenser.
I have a choice of making the RIMS tube either 2" or 4" diameter with a 3600W element. I am thinking the 2" is the way to go, then attach the 4" condenser via reducers at either end.
Thanks for any tips you can give and apologies if this has been covered already!
